    Has anyone heard of a new psoriasis treatment called Tinefcon?

    I have suffered from psoriasis all my life. Recently I have come across a new treatment which is a herbal supplement called Tinefcon. It promises amazing results for psoriasis sufferers. I have been taking the supplement for over a month now and I haven't seen any improvements as yet. The manufacturers do say that you need to take it for 3 months before any significant improvements. I am keen to know if anyone else has come across this product? Is it a scam?

    I have not heard of TInefcon and I advise you remain objective in your assessment of the benefit.

    For people with moderate to severe psoriasis Epworth Dermatology is currently recruiting patients for a double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Double blind means that neither the doctor or the patient know who is taking placebo and who is recieving the active drug. This allows the regulators to fully assess the effictiveness and the safety of a new product.

    Patients with moderate to severe psoriasis who live in VIctoria and are interested in volonteering to participate in these trial should contact the Epworth Dermatology Clinical Trials Co-ordinator on 96542426.

    Thanks for the reply.  I would love to be part of a clinical trial but unfortunately I live in Sydney. If you are aware of any in Sydney then please let me know.

    It worked wonders for me.  After three months the psoriasis was about 90% gone - after 6 months - gone.  Before taking Tinefcon I had tried hundreds of dollars of creams and lotions, some OTC some Rx etc and nothing worked. My hands were raw, cracked and bleeding - fingertips split, palms cracked under the hard scales.  Now I have smooth skin that no longer hurts and no side effects. I've been taking it for almost 2 years - I stopped for a while and within a few months it came back so I got a 6 months supply again and it worked again.

    As far as my experience with Tinefcon goes it is NOT a scam.  This stuff really worked when nothing else did.  I did not try the drugs generally prescribed because of their potentially serious side effects.  My doctor agreed with me not taking the drugs and is delighted by my results with Tinefcon.
